Putin’s Take on the Georgian Conflict

This is a fascinating interview with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and CNN, where Mr. Putin suggests that the United States may have pushed Georgia to begin the conflict in South Ossetia, and possibly to benefit the U.S. Presidential bid of John McCain.

CNN’s Matthew Chance interviews Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

I’m not making this stuff up. If Putin is (and frankly, let’s remember he was in the KGB) it still makes for interesting reading.

Also, Mr. Putin gives us some historical background on the region, and offers some thoughts on other international issues, from Kosovo, to Iran, North Korea and even agricultural trade between the US and Russia.
